Andrew Jordan, Pirtek Racing Hope To Bounce Back At Knockhill

1 Mins read

After a difficult weekend at Snetterton Pirtek Racing duo Andrew Jordan and Jeff Smith are confident of being back in the thick of the British Touring Car action at Knockhill.

“We want to hit the ground running in Scotland,” said Jordan. “Normally we go well at Knockhill. The races there are very hectic and you need to be very controlled and not get involved in things. At Knockhill you've got to qualify near the front. If you can qualify well and get a good solid race one, it sets you up for the other two races.”

“If you don't qualify near the front you do see a difference in the driving standards.”

The now traditional visit to Scotland is frequently one of the most spectacular weekends for the BTCC. The Fife track is set verdant Scottish hills, home to some of the most changeable weather in the UK.

The undulating track, with the drivers kerb hopping over the track's trademark chicane, perched on the crest of a rise.

The three races at Snetterton severely dented Jordan's chances in both the overall and independents' championship and the Staffordshire based driver now lies sixth and third respectively in the points standings, both led by Airwaves Racing Mat Jackson.
